Hellen Thomas Gets Real About Israel's Siege of Gaza

Raw video from AP shows helen Thomas in an act of courage.

We need more reporters like Helen, and the Shoe Thrower.

News reporters should report the news, and not allow themselves to be the vectors of propaganda from one side.

By the way, is Israel a real country? I mean, do they even have a constitution?

And from democracy Now we have...

"JAMES ABOUREZK: Now, that’s an offhanded remark. I mean, the guy caught her unawares. She probably hadn’t thought that much more about it. But I understand what she really meant: they’re taking the place of Palestinians who cannot return to Palestine, their home. That’s basically what she was trying to say. And I don’t think she ought to be hammered because of that. Look, she lost her job. She lost her position in the Press Club. She lost her position in the White House press corps. That’s punishment over-the-top for what she was really intending to say there."

"James Abourezk, former Democratic senator and congressman from South Dakota. The first Arab American in the Senate, he’s also the founder of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee."

Farewell Helen Thomas:
